I go Anglesey a lot and eat out on there a lot, it is a place I have been going since I was a child. There are so many places around that offer gluten free, these are just a few of my suggestions!
Our where to eat guide
is always getting a lot of hits from people looking for places to eat on Anglesey
, as a frequent visitor over there I have found so many amazing places to eat out gluten free.
Granted I haven't tried all the places, but I have been a fair few. The ones I have put in here are ones I have visited a few times (or more!) and love and I have reviewed 5 out of the 7 of them (I just never got round to doing the others, I will when I visit them again).
Like I said, these seven are my favourite places on Anglesey but there are so many more, my Mum who is also gluten free enjoys The Black Seal at Trearddur Bay and also the Sea Shanty at the same place, I haven't yet tried them so can't comment but she says both are amazing.
You can also find more places on our where to eat guide, currently there are 19 listings for Anglesey
but when we find more or get told about other places we will add them too.
1. Coastal Cafe, Moelfre
Coastal Cafe, Moelfre
I think this one has to be my favourite, sorry everywhere else! Coastal Cafe is also a fish bar but John, the owner, doesn't only do fish and chips, nope, he has a huge variety, scampi, liver and bacon, fish pie, burgers, fish cakes, sausages, fish fingers... the list just goes on and on. He also has some desserts and they aren't fruit either, bread and butter pudding, sticky toffee pudding, actual proper puds!
He uses all separate areas for prep and really understands Coeliac. If you want to eat in, make sure you book though they do get busy especially in the evenings.

2. Harbourfront Bistro, Holyhead
Harbourfront Bistro, Holyhead
Harbourfront is attached to the Maritime Museum and is on the harbour at Holyhead, you can watch the ferries coming in along the breakwater through the window.
All food is made fresh on the premises and you can see the kitchen as it is all open, the majority of the menu is gluten free and is all labelled and the chef will run through the menu just to make sure you know what is safe, he even told us all his procedures and what he used in the kitchen. Really good grub, not the cheapest but great for a treat or special occasion.

3. Llynon Windmill, Llanddeusant
One of the last places you would expect to do gluten free is a mill. The mill is working however they do do gluten free in the cafe, meals are pretty much the usual salads and jacket potato, however they they do some amazing cakes.
The cakes are actually homemade but away from the premises, the lady who makes they dedicates a day at home to gluten free cake making and brings them into the cafe wrapped up individually. Definitely worth a visit, my Mum says the hot chocolate is to die for too!
Llynon Windmill can be found at Llanddeusant, Holyhead, LL65 4AB
4. Golden Fry, Benllech
Golden Fry, Benllech
Another chip shop, this one is at Benllech, they are limited to mostly just fish but all their fish is battered in gluten free batter so you can be sure it is gluten free. They have been known to do gluten free fish cakes but I don't know if they still do them, it has been a while since I had one from there.
They do offer a gluten free pud here, in the freezer they stock cheesecakes which are made locally and they have a selection of gluten free ones. They don't do eat in so by the time you have eaten your fish and chips down on the beach your cheesecake will be nicely defrosted!

. The Golden Fry is right behind Tesco Express just back from Benllech beach and can be found at The Square, Benllech, LL74 8SN.
5. Surf Cafe, Rhosneigr
Surf Cafe, Rhosneigr
Only problem here is the difficulty in parking when it is a nice day. It is pretty close to the beach, above a surf shop and the parking is almost none existent, however if you can park the food is delicious!
Gluten free is marked on the menu and there is a good variety, the soups are delicious on a cold, windy day but they also do gluten free bread and breakfasts and also have a variety of cakes on offer. Great for a quick snack or a spot of lunch when you come off Rhosneigr beach.
Surf Cafe can be found at 1 Beach Terrace, Rhosneigr LL64 5QB
6. Owain Glyndwr, Llandonna
Owain Glyndwr, Llanddona
This little local pub is the kind of place that you think "they won't do gluten free" but they do, it is usually more locals that eat there, or has been when we have visited but they have a fabulous gluten free menu.
All items that are gluten free are marked on the menu and they have a variety of gluten free options from pizzas to grills. Last time we went they had some amazing desserts to including gluten free pancakes!

7. South Stack RSPB Visitor Centre Cafe
South Stack Lighthouse
Ok, South Stack doesn't offer much, they can do jacket potatoes and they do have a gluten and dairy free cake which is kept separately though so there are a few options if you want them though not a great lot of choice
South Stack is always worth a visit just to watch the ferries come in and just generally enjoy all the nature up there. The cafe is nothing special but at least it does have options, the cake is pretty damn good!
South Stack cafe can be found on the main round up to the lighthouse next to the main car park, Holyhead, LL65 1YH.
If you want somewhere to stay on Anglesey we can highly recommend Blackthorn Farm B&B by Trearddur Bay too, they are fabulous when it comes to gluten free!
Our where to eat guide
currently has over 1,900 listings for all over the UK and Ireland, all places are suggested by fellow Coeliacs, we verify they do gluten free and add them to the site. We try and establish places take the proper procedures but this isn't always possible for us. Places also change over time so we can't guarantee that any of the places still cater to Coeliacs, we do try and weed out places that no longer cater or have closed and try and keep the guide as up to date as possible. You can suggest places to add through our place request form
, similarly you can let us know of places that have closed/changed through the same form.
